1894, CROTON NEWS, SOME INTERESTING ITEMS GATHERED BY OUR CORRESPONDENTS

Welcome to EverythingCroton, a collection of all things Croton--our history, our homes, our issues, our businesses, our schools--in short, EVERYTHING CROTON.

Thought you'd enjoy the 'NEIGHBORHOOD NEWS' from "Croton Landing" and "Mt. Airy", courtesy of the Highland Democrat October 17, 1894; how many names do you recognize? P.S. There's quite a bit in here about the Asbury Methodist Church, as well as the "Columbian Hook & Ladder" and "chemical engines".

Click on the scans. Enjoy. With many thanks to the Everything Croton elves.

  1. Did you notice that Fletcher Quick had had "malaria fever"? Didn't know they had malaria up here back then.
